PTA Bake Sale/Lost & Found

The PTA will be having a bake/snack sale Thursday after school outside the main doors.  Everything is $1.  Please have exact change.  Any donations would be greatly appreciated and should be sent to the office Thursday morning.

If your child has misplaced a personal belonging throughout this school year, these are the final days to retrieve them from the Lost & Found tables.  We have two tables in the main hallway with lost coats, scarves, bags, etc.  Any items remaining on the tables will be donated.

5th grade parents….

Hello Fifth Grade Parents,

The end of the year is approaching and our boys and girls are getting ready for the next chapter in their lives. In order for fifth grade promotions/ceremony to be successful, we would like to take some time to plan and sort the end of the year activities. We are looking for some more volunteers and participation in making it a successful event. We are planning on having a meeting on Tuesday, May 8 at 6:30 pm at the Biggby Coffee Shop on Michigan Avenue and Military in West Dearborn. We would love for you to come and share your ideas and time.

Thank You

5th grade Homeroom Moms

Packet Pickup time on Race Day Saturday, April, 28th 7:30 – 8am

We strongly encourage ALL participants to make time to pick up these items on Friday, April 27 because of how many people we have registered this year as it will make everything run more efficiently. However, if you are completely unable to make it on Friday, race-day pickup will be available. At packet pick-up you will receive your t-shirt, race bib, color packet(s) (if you ordered extra), and raffle ticket.

***Remember to bring your e-tickets that where emailed to you after registering.***

1 Raffle ticket is included in every participant’s packet. If you would like to purchase additional raffle tickets you can buy them at packet pick-up or the Howard booth event day.

The color packets will be used for the finish line mass color throw. This creates the infamous color cloud. This is where you’ll want to use the color pack you received in your race packet. If you have used your color pack, or would like to purchase additional color, we will have a very limited quantity for sale at packet pick-up on Friday, April 27. First come… first serve!
